BBQ Chicken and Grits Casserole

BBQ Chicken & Grits Casserole - cheesy grits topped with bbq chicken, bacon and cheddar. SO delicious!! Can make ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to bake.

Chicken Legs took one bite of this and said "People should make this!". I agree. This BBQ Chicken and Grits Casserole was SO yummy! Chicken, BBQ sauce, bacon and cheese on top of cheesy grits! How could it not be good?!?! The grits are great on their own, but when topped with BBQ chicken, bacon and cheese, they are over the top delicious!

I used a rotisserie chicken in this casserole. If you don't have any rotisserie chicken on hand, you can substitute a couple of cooked and chopped chicken breasts. For the grits, make sure you are using Quick Cook Grits, not instant. The package should say Quick Cook and ready in 5 minutes. I use Quaker brand grits.

  1. If you want some super creamy rich grits, sub half the water with milk.
